this guide is mainly for WKs from 2005-2010. if you have a newer model, it will probably be different considering the more technology being put into WK2's

Wheelman04 Sadly 2004 model that I have didn't come with prewired harness , It's going to be too involved to hook up like factory because multiple electronic parts are missing. so i'm probably just wire to headlights .

Wjinnc Hey im having the same issue, what did you end up doing?

Wheelman04 I have a 2004 model that I want to install fog lights on, I have the multi function switch and fog lights .. problem is with 2004 model the wiring harness didn't come on all models . I can create a harness but need to know where to hook the 12v feed wires to so the factory switch will work .

Torgo I just did this last night and it goes surprisingly quickly. The biggest single problem I had is that on a 2009, the steering column fasteners are not Torx but Phillips head screws and they are a real pain to get out and back in. Thanks to the posters that put the pictures together.

I bought the TYC lights off of Amazon and I have to say I am floored by the amount of quality for the price. They were only $15 each, I would have expected 2 or 3 times that.

Can anyone tell me what the commands are for the PCM change so I can tell me dealer? I also just installed an OEM Bluetooth handsfree kit and the dealer instructions (while not much better than IKEA instructions) had a very detailed page telling exactly what the dealer tech should do for the reprogramming.

Marna89 So I'm going to be installing soon. I called my local jeep dealership to see how much it will cost to program...$85! I somehow would like to find a way to get that price down. Any suggestions?

Rkirk I just finished this upgrade to my 06, great write up and instructions, thanks! I got my light assemblies from amazon.com for about $15 (# TYC 19-5769-90) each with shipping, the switch however was about $140 from our local dealer, $165 was the list. I was able to find a standard motor products switch on rockauto.com for about $35 with shipping (part # CBS1208) I just wanted to put this info out there for anyone else looking to do this but couldn't find the parts at a reasonable cost. (the biggest problem I had was tracking down the parts within budget) hope this helps anyone looking to do this.

jas32 I just completed the foglamp install on my 2008 WK Laredo.

My expenses were as follows:
2 X Lamps from Amazon @ $13.68 each = $27.36 (includes shipping)
1 X Relay from Autozone @ $11.65 (includes tax)
1 X Multifunction Switch from Chrysler Dealer @ $35.00 (list price)
A 20 AMP fuse for the foglamps was already installed on the fuse block.
I used stainless steel sheetmetal screws and SS washers to secure the lamps to the holder just to make sure the screws do not rust out.

Total Cost: $74.01
Starscan programming was done by my buddy who works for Chrysler.

BTW there seem to be some confusion regarding the PN for the Multifunction switch. The parts guy at the dealership researched it and ended up with the following PN: 68041485AB
This is for a 2008 WK Laredo w/Fog w/o Auto headlights.

Thanks for the great instructions guys !!!

MontesXJ @RIDER: A new mult-function switch comes with the OEM kit. If you don't want to go that route, you can wire it separately using an aftermarket switch (may want to check with your states regs, though...as some require the fogs to be switched so that they automatically switch off when you use your high beams...OEM switch does this). Can't confirm to whether this setup will work with other fogs lights, though I don't see why not as long as the voltage/current requirement is same a OEM bulbs.

Good luck.

RIDER6 do you have to install a new multi function switch or if i donít will it still work with my original one when I turn my head lights on? also when searching ebay for parts I keep getting results for the 300 and the aspen, are those gonna fit as well? or do i gotta get wk jeep certified

Do you by chance have those commands. My jeep dealership wants to charge me $75 to program it. (and that is the "special" price for someone at another dealership) When I called they wanted $95!!!!
